Five Days In The Wilderness


Hello! Today I’d like to share with you our backpacking trip in the Beartooths. I’ll keep this post rather short as the pictures speak for themselves.

We hiked a trail called The Beaten Path trail in the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness. The trail is situated Northeast of Yellowstone National Park, in a rugged and remote mountain range.

Screen Shot 2013-07-27 at 7.02.07 AMWe took five days to do twenty-six miles because there is so much to see. Waterfalls, mountain peaks, hidden lakes, snow fields. But I am talking too much. Take a look at the photos!


Technically the sign at the end of the trail for us, but it makes for a good intro.


Lots and lots of stream crossings!



This was near Fossil Lake as we were getting above tree line.


The weather held out, and it was gorgeous.


Here we are skirting the edge of Fossil Lake, above 10,000 feet in elevation!

We set up camp one night shortly after Fossil Lake. While the sun was glowing and the temperatures were warm, there were still hundreds of snowfields everywhere.



This is Dewey Lake, which had incredible views.



Impasse Falls, shortly after Dewey Lake.



A gorgeous lake named Lake-At-Falls.


On our way out, hiking past Rimrock Lake.



We were able to find enough downed wood to build a hefty campfire on our final night!

After we got off the trail, we played tourist for a day at Yellowstone National Park.


Old Faithful, and a very pretty doggy.

There you have it! Thus concludes our trip in the Beartooths. It was lovely, and I’d hike The Beaten Path again in a heartbeat. If you ever find yourself looking to plan a trip in the Montana/Wyoming area, I’d highly recommend it!
